Awaaz initiative is a collective which aims to democratise socio-legal discourse for communities in their own languages.

Presence in: India
Focus: Community Paralegals, Policy Advocacy

We believe that the sole reliance on a few languages for the expression of issues pertaining to justice, has led to the invisibilisation of stories of communities that speak other languages. This, in turn, takes away agency from the languages that are underrepresented and ignored by mainstream discourse. This initiative seeks to pave the way for these languages and stories to have an equal space to be heard and ultimately to imagine a future where the national discourse and interest represent the country’s diversity.
